hope everybody enjoys the fact that we're always pushing for something
new while staying true to our rock 'n' roll roots,” said
Keith Nelson. “We can’t wait to play the Love Ride
for the first time, and help raise money for such a great cause.”
Josh Todd, “The big payoff is when someone finds inspiration
in our music. Everything we do is right from the heart and with
the Love Ride, people can immediately turn that inspiration into
action, helping local kids.”
Robby Krieger Returns to Love Ride
concert kicks off the fourth decade of fundraising for charitable
causes, and Robby Krieger has lent his incredible talent to twelve
Love Ride events. This year, Robby brings his Jam Kitchen to play
a rocking selection of hits.
“I was lucky enough to play the very first Love Ride back
in the eighties. After that Oliver asked me back many time, and
got to play with Eric Burdon, Kieth Emerson and others. That first
Love Ride was really the first event of its kind, and broke new
ground in the fundraising arena.”
Robby is joined by his group, Jam Kitchen, which features three
guys from Frank Zappas’ band: Arthur Barrow, Tommy Mars
and Chad Wackerman. Added Robby, “We do our own music, as
well as some Doors and Zappa tunes.”
